Budget-Friendly Ways to Save on Your Winter Vacation Wardrobe


Perhaps you have booked a romantic winter getaway to a ski lodge, where you will spend your days gliding down the powdery mountainside and your evenings sitting by the cozy fire. Or, maybe you have planned an adventurous winter trip to a national park where you will bundle up each day in order to go hiking or snowshoeing on the trails. No matter what type of winter vacation you are about to embark on, it’s important that you figure out what to wear without spending your entire budget on your winter vacation wardrobe.

Here’s how you can build an inexpensive winter vacation wardrobe that doesn’t sacrifice style:

Use Layers to Your Advantage

Winter is all about staying warm and cozy, which means that layers are necessary. Find a few basics that you can mix-and-match throughout your vacation, allowing you to create several outfits from the same pieces. Tops in neutral colors, such as beige or black, can easily pair with patterned scarves or brightly-colored cardigan sweaters.

Find One Pair of Versatile Boots

Boots are almost always necessary when you are taking a winter vacation, but they can be pricey to purchase. Save space and money by searching for one pair of high-quality, versatile boots that can be used both indoors or outdoors. Remember that your boots should be comfortable and functional above all else.

Use Inexpensive Scarves, Gloves, and Hats to Accessorize

If you are going to be spending the majority of your time outside, then you’ll likely be wearing the same jacket each day. Switch up your look by purchasing some inexpensive scarves, gloves, and hats. These simple accessories can update any outfit, and allow you to express yourself in a variety of ways without compromising your comfort.

You don’t have to shop at the finest boutiques before your winter vacation in order to look fabulous. Using these tips for creating an inexpensive winter vacation wardrobe, you’ll look picture perfect in all of your Instagram posts and you’ll still have plenty of money leftover to thoroughly enjoy your time away.
